A Democratic Senator is urging Republican leaders in Virginia to insist on the resignation of GOP Treasurer Bob Fitzsimmonds after bigoted remarks he made about Muslim Americans, reports
Fitzsimmonds posted the following on Facebook after President Obama praised the Muslim American community for their many contributions to society.
“I was extremely dismayed, and frankly shocked, to see Mr. FitzSimmonds’ bigoted suggestion that Muslim Americans have done nothing to contribute to our great country or to strengthen its fabric,” Virginia State Senator Donald McEachin said. “That claim is indefensible- and it becomes even worse in the context of FitzSimmonds’ past statements.”
